with steve harrigan live in tripoli where it's just after midnight. good morning, steve. >> bret, the city of tripoli is once again rocking with the sound of gunfire. all day long we saw and heard young men, who of whom have been fighting the gaddafi regime for six months, firing up in the air. now through the night it's the same stair. antiaircraft gun firing in celebration as well. this is despite the fact there remains much fighting still to be done. >> fighting continues in pockets in tripoli. intensifying throughout the day. by gaddafi's come pound that rebels captured yesterday. inside of the compound is ransacked. debris left similar to that, littering the streets around the city. proregime snipers targeted the road leading to tripoli's airport. while rebels manned various check points throughout the city, performing searches on vehicles. as rebels push ahead, the international focus turns to a humanitarian mission. unfreezing libyan access to aid those affected by months of brutal fighting. meanwhile, dozens of international journalist held captive in a hotel for five days by the g
it in positive light, steve. is this somewhat of a relief to them? that the president has done this. they don't have to vote on this issue. essentially, supporting those who have grown up and want to contribute to the country and serve the military and go to college. people like senator mccain and others who have said this, but then they don't have to vote on it. >> i don't think it is. because this doesn't solve the broader problem. the reason this is objectionm beyond what we mentioned here it doesn't come in the right context. if it were part of a broader legislative package that would do some of the things that charles is talk about ta, would strengthen border security, in that context, you can see people saying well, we have to do this kind of prioritization. and this is the way we ought to do it. but in the absense of that kind of broader argument, you are not actually going anything to solve the problem. so this in effect is making perpetuating the problem rather than solving it. >> down the line, is this upheld in the court? >> probably, yes. probably. the president has a lot of leewa
a crowd here. let's bring in our panel. steve hayes . karen. national political correspondant for the washington post and jeff with the new york times. they are all up the road in ames and we are here in the iowitate fair. teave, first to you. thoughts about the debate and how it affects the brand picture and this race? >> i thought it was a good debate and lots of interesting exchanges and revealed what the candidate hope to do with the debate going into the straw poll. tim pawlenty takog michelle bachmann and she returned fire. rick sanatorium expressing himself . newt gingrich to arise from the slumber that he's been in . i think you have a bunch of candidates doing a lott of things and giving an energiic push going into the traw poll. what you didn't have is much much a vision. there was not a big moment for any of the candidates where voters sitting at home would say yes, that is my guy or woman. this is why i am a conservative or a republican. nothing that expressed a broader vision of republican governorinance in the way republicans are hungaring for. >> karen, your tho
griffin monitoring the developments from the pentagon. but we begin with correspondent steve harrigan live in zentan, south of tripoli. good evening. >> reporter: right now they say that muammar gaddafi is still inside the country of libya but not saying specific whereabouts. it's unclear where he is. the latest unconfirmed reports have him heading to algeria. we spent 11 12 hours with rebels on the way to the capital with the special help from nato, high-tech help, rebel fighters in the capital say they need at this point is gasoline. we're going with a 5,000 gallon gas tanker to help supply rebels in their fight. one of the key weapon in the battle is a pickup truck used to mount vehicle and move the troops around. finally over the past 24 hours with the rebel officials we notice a sea change in mood. just 24 hours ago there was a sense of jubilation, ecstasy, the rumors they captured gaddafi and walked in tripoli and would take the capital. that has changed dramatically with the push back by the government forces. and the ensuing casualties there is a sense here of real momentum and it'
. perspective as we bring in the panel. steve hayes, stand stand. charles lane, editorial writer for "washington post." sindcated columnist, charles krauthammer. chuck, overall thoughts about the whole whatever it is we watched in the past couple of weeks. >> well, call me crazy. but i'm willing to say the cup half full. my reasoning is we have gone through a brutal debate. it did end in a compromise. the debt ceiling meltdown scenario got avoided. the debate sharpened and crystallized. it had pep traited the country's consciousness, the public is really focused on the nation's financial conditions in a really serious way. there were endless antics in washington, but the issue is squarely confronting the country in a healthy way. >> bret: steve, late today, moody's came out and reaffirmed the government triple-a credit rating but gave at it negative outlook. one of the concern was the joint committee that the bill sets up. here is a quote. while the combination of the congressional committee process and the automatic triggers provides a mechmism to induce fiscal discipline -- this is actually no
for deportation. critics call this backdoor amnesty that has not gone through congress. bring in the panel. steve hayes, for stand stand. arn"weeklystandard." nina easton. and charles krauthammer. >> one thing, this reflects a political calculation, a realistic calculation by the president. the approval ratings are kind of falling like untethered elevator at this point. he is in the doghouse with the latino voters. he came in with the expectation there would be some level of immigration reform. instead what he focused on is deportation to tune of 400,000 a year. that has the lay te know community extremely angry. so he is moving, i think moving toward the policy. yes, it's a backdoor policy. i think that the problem with it is that it misses the component when you leave people here, it misses the component of amnesty, which most of the public supports, which earning your way here. it's too bad that the political atmosphere became so poisonous over this question of path to citizen, by the way, three-quarters of the american people supports that we, the he is not going through the front door with t
in the panel about this. steve hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with the hill. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. what about this action, charles? >> i thought the late-day rally that we saw probably started around 3:00, when the president would not address the country, cheering and thrown in the air. general international exuberance. that is an attempt at satire. trying to get a chuckle. >> bret: i figured i'd let you go. >> you have to explain yourself, it's -- >> bret: the crickets were chirping. okay. >> i guess i wasn't cut out for that. the real story is what happened around 2:00. the man who really runs america, chairman of the federal reserve said for two years, keep interest rates low. normally, the chairman will say words like indefinitely, or for a while. they'll use the obscure words. but he was extremely specific. this is a contrast from the predecessor. he spoke in language that was so opaque and obscure you think you were listening to distinct himalayandy lecht. this ilecht -- himalayan dialect. he said two years so at a
it in the mail, podium not required. thanks. bring in panel. steve hayes for stand stand. karen tomolty, "washington post." sindcated columnist charles krauthammer. charles? >> i am with the press secretary and the speaker. remember obama had said he had a plan, well originally he had a plan it was called the budget in february. it was laughed out of the senate, pause it was spending spree in the middle of the debt crisis. so he did a redo with the speech april 19, which was announced. and touted as a plan. well, when the plan was put to the director of the c.b.o., in congress, he was asked what that obama plan number two would do with the budget. the deficit. he answered there was no way of telling. he said we don't estimate speeches. meaning a speech is something. it's hot air. it's not real. the question is this another speech in the tradition of the april 13 speech or a plan? if is it a plan, put it on paper and show us the numbers. that has been the problem with the president. he has had all the leaks and he says i'm prepared to take hard choices. i am willing to discuss entitlemen
: moments ago in new hampshire. what about all of this? bring in the panel. steve hayes, for "weekly standard." jeff zelney, political correspondent for "new york times." syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, perspective and analysis here. >> well, the critics are right. it is late. but we sell-that criticism over and over in the last half year now over the delay. the administration deserves credit for what it did. "a," calling for the resignation. "b," coordinating it well with britain, and germany. the other leaders at the same time. "c" the sanctions. the embargo on sales of oil. that would be important if it was europe yap embargo as well. so having a european boycott would be important. last isolating it and condemning it. even,000 though it has my mall effect. worth doing over and over again. syria analysislated and always has been. since it aligned its with the non-arab iran years ago. this accentuates that. isolation in the ray rab world means something. lastly, we still have the ambassador on the ground. we sent him with the french ambassador a few weeks ago to
to capture or kill him. meanwhile, there is ferocious fighting in the capital tonight. steve harrigan is live in tripoli where it's just after milmidnight. good morning. >> with much of the city in rebel's hands the shift has gone to hunt for colonel gaddafi. the british defense officials confirm that the nato access are used to aid the libyan rebels in the hunt for muammar gaddafi. unconfirmed reports said gaddafi was surrounded in a series of apartment buildings in tripoli. loyalist spokesman denied the claims saying that the colonel was alive and well, but not saying where. in an audiotape, gaddafi called the rebels rats and called on followers to march on tripoli and purify the city. meantime, several pockets of fighting and victory celebrations continue side-by side-by-side. thigh arrive in homemade vehicles and weapons. they have rocket launchers and antiaircraft guns. they enjoy the show. some cover their ears. but the message express with guns, cars and anything at hand is clear. we have won the war. >> this is a dictator. we finished. we finish all of the dictator now. this is the la
not be full. steve hayes is here to tell us about a popular congressman who may consider a run. good evening. >> congressman paul ryan is considering getting in the race. >> he is. i talked to several people in the past three or four days who said that paul ryan is taking time, meeting with the strategists in the past couple of months, looking at the possibility of a late entry in the presidential race by gaming it out. talking to people who are important to run on strategy and personal side. trying to gauge interest in going forward. >> bret: this is real. we have heard this before. >> my editor bill kristol fantasizeed about this for months. this is real. i talk to people in contact with him. i looked at this vigorously at the end of june and i was waved off at the end when i had come up with quite a bit of what he had done in prep race of a race. talking to strategist and the reg tration -- registration. >> bret: he asked not to be on the super committee. set up in the debt ceiling deal. he has given foreign policy speeches in recent months. his pac is running ads in iowa. >> right, exact
, according to the white house. let's bring in the panel. steve hayes, senior writer for "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with "the hill." a.b. stoddard, associate editor of "the hill." and sindcated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, you said you know it's a big night of importance when the panel expands. >> absolutely. all of america trembles. if there is a fifth, it's the apocalypse. >> bret: your thoughts? >> i think since the boehner proposal passed in the house thursday night after all the craziness it was clear we would not have a default. we would have an agreement. we now have it no question it passes in the two houses. it gets signed in a week we worry what the insanity was about. i don't think there was a tremendously high chance of default or breaching the debt ceiling. once boehner had control of his house, it was a done deal. i expect that in an hour it will be done in the house. interesting to see how many republicans will go against the leadership, how many democrats will oppose it on the left. there will be a tradeoff. either side wants to protect its wing
